Mother’s Strength


(Inspired by Kee Thampi)


I’ll always remember Mother -
she was tender as could be.
And yet with great fortitude,
she stood like a tree.

She was anchored in hope
and firm in her love.
And with a steadfast faith,
she looked above.

Her legacy to her children
is the 'example' of her life:
She was a mother and friend.
And she was a loving wife.

Her strength (an asset)
was a shining light, thus,
a very important lesson
Imparted unto us.


*Note: thank you Kee Thampi for suggesting that I write a 'personal' poem about my mother, like you wrote about your 'mum.'

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
